A new video has been released by ACVideos (that's Assassin's Creed Videos, in case you didn't know) detailing 20 confirmed facts about the game that a lot of people probably didn't know about. You can check out the video and find out some interesting things about the game.
Now usually, lists are pretty worthless most times when it comes to games because there's hardly anything worthwhile in them that you didn't already know. This list, however, actually details some interesting facts that a lot of gamers probably really didn't know about the upcoming title, and for once, the list actually contains some useful information that may actually convince some people that this newest Assassin's Creed title could be worth the purchase.
Now some of you are probably wondering how are these confirmed facts and where did ACVideos get their information from? Well, GameRanx makes it known that ACVideos did their homework by trudging through the thicket of interviews conducted in, around and throughout this year's E3 trade show.
The information they uncovered was actually pretty unique and kind of informative. Being able to lightly customize Arno is a pretty cool thing. They also mention that the game is heavily story-oriented around this Arno character and that they're bringing it back to the roots of Assassin's Creed and Assassin's Creed 2. I imagine this would explain why you can't choose to play as any other characters.
Tying into the story-oriented elements of the game, we learn that the French revolution is actually just a quick backdrop to a more personal story involving the main protagonist, probably similar to how the conflict involving the Roman Catholic conflict was just a backdrop to Ezio's vendetta throughout his series of games.
I was most curious about how co-op would work and I'm glad the video briefly touched on this – so it appears as if players will have to head to a hub to start up co-op play. Additionally, missions will range between requiring two to four players. So not every co-op mission will require four people. I'm still not exactly sure how that works or what determines the number but I'm sure we'll find out closer to the game's release.
One of the most exciting new elements to the game is the interior feature. Being able to traverse from outside to inside without loading times is a pretty slick feature. I was pretty sure that were some moments in Brotherhood where you could go into and out of some buildings without it loading, but maybe since I played the PC version and load times were brisk and almost non-existent most times, I just don't remember them.
Anyway, Assassin's Creed Unity is set for release on home consoles and PC starting October 28th. You can learn more about the game by paying a visit to the official website.
